Google’s artificial intelligence program, AlphaGo, just won its second Go match against a human

“Go is an ancient game—invented, legend has it, by the mythical First Emperor of China, for the instruction of his son. It is played all over East Asia, where it occupies roughly the same position as chess does in the West. It is popular with computer scientists, too. For AI researchers in particular, the idea of cracking Go has become an obsession. Other games have fallen over the years—most notably when, in 1997, one of the best chess players in history, Garry Kasparov, lost to a machine called Deep Blue. Modern chess programs are better than any human. But compared with Go, teaching chess to computers is a doddle.”
